Hi everyone my name is Ryan. I live in the great northwest where we are blessed with amazing lakes and rivers and amazing fishing opportunities. I have been lurking in the forum for a little under a year now and I am very impressed with what I have seen. Last summer I inherited a Hews Craft 12' Sportsman with a trailer and a 7.5h Chrysler outboard. We spent a ton of time this summer bass,trout,Kokanee and salmon fishing from this boat. The trailer was in descent condition but needed some repairs the boat and outboard were in amazing condition. I did not have to do many repairs leading up to this mod. I'll start out with the trailer refurb and update then follow it up with the boat. Thanks for looking and enjoy!

Nearly the finished product. Everything was treated with spar urethane and then painted. I routed all the wiring through 3/8 " conduit. From the center seat to all of the electronics. I have to still add the second pen down rigger and I will eventually be adding a switch, lights and a bilge pump. But I am very happy with how the boat turned out.
